Charity FAQs

What is Gift Aid?
Gift Aid is a simple government initiative which allows us to increase the value of your donations at no extra cost to you. For every pound you give to us we can get an extra 25 pence from the HMRC, helping your donation go further to help patients and their families. During the next year if each donor said yes to Gift Aid we could raise an incredible extra £125,000 to help patients and their families – so you can see why your help is so important to us.

More information about Gift Aid can be found in our Gift Aid leaflet. (Adobe PDF, 166Kb)

Can I choose where my donation goes?

Information and updates on our ongoing appeals will be updated on this website, such as appeals to raise funds for specialist pieces of equipment or improvements to the hospital environment that ensures that our patients get the best care possible. 

The Charity manages over 70 Charitable Trusts Funds that enhance the work of the Trust including:  

  • A&E Department Fund  Trust fundraiser    
  • Cardiac Centre

  • Children’s Ward    
  • Deanesly Centre (Cancer Services)

You can be confident that your donation will only be allocated to the Fund you request.

If you do not know which Fund to support, you can choose to donate to the Charities General Purpose Fund, where the Charitable Funds Committee in partnership with the Trust decides where your donation is best spent.

Can I hold my own event?

You can host your own event, this could be as traditional or innovative as you like - cake sales, coffee mornings, sponsored bike rides, half marathons, head-shaves, make up selfies, leaping out of planes, masquerade ball – the possibilities are endless! There are many things to consider when organising your fundraising, so we have put together a general guide on the things you may need to think about before your event and what to do when your event has finished.
